Fighting was reported from the southern tip of South Vietnam's norttiernmost Quang Tyi Province but no major engagements were reported by either the American or Vietnamese military commands. Operation Cedar Falls continued at a slower pace with U.S. troops in the Iron Triangle reporting only light contact in the operation area north of Saigon, development was to 30 miles The biggest the uncovering of a massive tunnel Friday, believed to be the headquarters of the Visf. Cong's 4th Military Region.

He said the destroyers came under coastal fire about two miles southeast of Vinh and returned the fire. The spokesman said me shore batteries were "neutralized" and stopped firing, and the destroyers resumed their attacks on cargo vessels, destroying or damaging five of them. In the late afternoon, the Stoddard again came under fire from coastal gans, this time off the Dong Hoi area. The U.S. spokesman said the Stoddard's counterfire again silenced the batteries. He said there was no damage to the destroyers or casualties in either gun duel. During these coastal exchanges U.S pilots flew 92 bombing missions against North Vietnam, concentrating for the fifth straight day on rail yards were Jan. 7. Nhan Dan also thanked North Vietnam's allies for their support and reiterated the Communist terms for peace in Vietnam. The terms include withdrawal of U.S. troops and recognition of the Viet Cong as a party in any peace talks. The Philippine military contingent in Vietnam had its first combat death Friday when Viet Cong snipers .shot at a security platoon assigned to an engineering work party in the Tay Ninh area, according to reports in Manila.

North Vietnam accused the United Slates of attempting to obliterate the town of Ben Sue in the Dau Mot Province. Nhan Dan, the official North Vietnamese newspaper, said Atomic Airplane Project Stirs By PHILIP D. KEIF WASHINGTON (AP) - The billion-dollar atomic airplane project, buried six years ago, is being resurrected. There's not much movement, but the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is keeping the project alive. The main reason for revival: deveuopment of giant airplanes such as the C5A which will be able to handle the heavy weight of a nuclear reactor and radiation shielding. That necessary weight was one of the factors for abandonment in 1961 of the so-called Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion— ANP—project after spending Daily Record Weather Ye»t«rd«y'» high—51 Overnight low—34 Precipitation previous Z4 boure (to f a.m today)—nons PreollHtitJon Jan. 1 to <Ut«-7r.SS Bunaet today—5:18 Siinrleft tomorrow—7:05 Ibil Date A Tear AI» yesterday's high—36 nearly $1 billion ov«r a 15-year period. Since, then, jet engines have been developed for planes capable of carrying 300-500 persons. One of these, the Air Force's CS'A, 1- scheduled to be flown in 1968. A NASA spokesman said in response to a question Friday that its Lewis Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, has been carrying on a low-key research program the past three years. It is designed, he said, to keep abreast of the possibility of using atomic power in such large transports as the C5A. The breakthrough, said NASA's Aeronautical Division director Charles W. Harper, "is not in nuclear technology so much as the fact we're now interested in large airplanes."
